CRACKS IN MY FACE

Two of my Grandchildren are visiting for the holidays.

We were sitting together and Michael was reading to us.

Lauren had a question....

Bama,

Why does your face have cracks in it when you smile!!!!

AHHHH....

Another milestone in getting old!

MY JOURNEY TO OLD

Slowly...it continues to happen. Age is creeping up a little more every day. The other day it was the string around my neck.  Dangling from the string is my pair of close up glasses.

As of last night...I have added another "gettin Old" article of clothing.

I broke down and bought 2 turtle neck, long sleeved tops!

My string with the glasses hit my neck at just the right place for me to notice a definite sag that has begun in my neck area.

If I hadn't bought the string for the glasses..I would not have noticed the sag.

It seems as I get older, one correction leads to another.

Another big thing learned with having the glasses around my neck is that you DO NOT want to look in a mirror with the close up glasses on your eyes. I did and it was a frightening experience indeed!

So here I am...gettin older and starting the progression. Glasses first and now..

Turtle neck, long sleeved tops. They serve two purposes. One...The turtle hides the neck and the long sleeves cover loose skin and brown spots that are developing on my arms.

Pretty soon I will look like I am from the middle East and all you can see are my eyes (with close up glasses of course).

Maybe, those women are smarter than the rest of us. They covered up early and adjusted to the fact that they could age and no one would ever know!

Gettin old ain't for sissy's!!!!!!!!!!!!

ANOTHER MILESTONE

I reached another milestone in my journey to oldness today.

I put my close up glasses on a string around my neck!

I got tired of trying to find them when I needed to see up-close.

My vanity is gone along with my youth.

I just need to see.... when I need to see!

I BELIEVE...I BELIEVE...I BELIEVE!!!!

I BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS BECAUSE..........................

1. I believe in anyone who brings me jewelry!

2. He never ages!

3. He brings better presents than the Tooth Fairy!

4. He likes you no matter what you look like!

5. He brings me a present even when I don't have any money!

6.He doesn't worry about being fat!

7. One year he found me even though we moved!

AND.......

8. If you don't believe in him...You don't get any presents!

AND.........

9.If enough people believed in him...maybe, we wouldn't have wars.

AND...Most of all......

10. He makes the whole world happy for at least one day!

I LOVE YOU, SANTA!

EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN!

Has anyone noticed the sweaters with the long, matching scarves?

What is with all the scarves this year? And...

The Poncho's!

Kids today think that that is so new and sooo cool.

We wore thoes things in the 60's and 70's. We even wore the low slung jeans. Back then they were called "peanut jeans" and I wore a pair on my tiny body.

What about the short shorts we wore! Our buns hung out and looked cute...just like todays buns.

Kids today think that they invented fashion but they are WRONG!

I'm waiting for Polizo pants to make a return visit.

AND...the bleached out look on jeans...NOT new Kids!

We would buy a pair of Levi's and wash them in Clorox!

I have even seen some tie dye shirts!!!!Please don't let them come back!

So Kids, everything old is new again.

Including the word....COOL!

GETTIN OLD AND CHRISTMAS SHOPPING

I just got home from 3 hours of Christmas shopping!

What is wrong with people anyway?

There were no smiles and no Merry Christmas greetings.

Just determined looks and frustrated faces!

Every where I looked the faces were old and tired looking.  

 No joyful expressions, no lit up faces, no christmas spirit shining in the eyes....

Then, to my horror...

I realized that I was in a mirror store and looking at.......

MYSELF!

Time for a makeover....

inside and out!

THE BACK ATTACK AND THE AARP

I woke up this morning with my lower back hurting.

I did some stretches but they did not help, may have hurt!

I guess I will have to suck it up and find a Chiropractor.

Gettin old sure ain't for sissy's.

I was aware that I was hearing (in my head) my mother's words to sit up straight.

I tried that and it hurt. No wonder old people slump...

It hurts to stand up straight!

I think that I must be out of alignment or something.

Do you remember when your Mother told you not to cross your eyes or they would stick that way?

I must have been slumping so long that my back has stuck this way.

I no longer do things in a single bound. I can no longer leap tall buildings.

Heck, I had trouble getting out of bed this morning and getting my legs to move.

It must be happening...

I am getting old.

How do I know that????????

I just got the invitation to join the AARP! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
